The National Magazine Awards Foundation has launched a new, free best practices guide for content creators. The Foundation, which runs the annual national magazine awards, says it will help NMA-winners and nominees to leverage their awards. A pdf version of the guide is available here.
"The guide provides detailed promotional strategies, insightful personal testimony and plenty of other useful resources to help award winners and nominees best leverage and optimize their National Magazine Awards."In addition to the guide, the foundation has released a webinar that grew out of a discussion in November called the Winners' Circle (which I moderated) and in which three NMA winners–Penny Caldwell of Cottage Life, Matthew Blackett of Spacing and Katherine Laidlaw of The Walrus–shared their best practices on how to capitalize on their recognition of winning a National Magazine Award.
